Depending on the business model,mechanical contracting companies can run hundreds or thousands of projects annually and use hundreds of thousands of labor codes between the shop and the field to track labour.
From design and fabrication to installation and accounting, BuildCentrix can support 20,000 plus jobs and hundreds of thousands of labor codes in its platform. Its integrated data system helps project managers know more about their projects faster by connecting jobs, phases, and labor codes from accounting to shop to field timekeeping and back again.
“No matter how complex, we can facilitate that information,” says James Beveridge, CEO at BuildCentrix. “We can interface with your financial tools, accounting, or ERP to place all the information that is critical to a business from all areas of a project, including codes, and hold that information and programatically link to it.”
This is a huge differential for BuildCentrix, as most project softwares do not connect to ERP systems. With BuildCentrix, it is possible to enter the time and labor data and integrate that straight back to payroll, which means companies and projects benefit from real-time labor and material reporting.
All the material data, shop labor, field labor, and costing data can be queried by product, project, and trade type, and a business can report all at once or by module to generate any data required.
It is an essential component in the construction industry because almost everything is job costed. “Every expense or cost incurred by the company, be it payroll, labor costs, or materials, gets attached to a project, and all the project information has to be held,” Beveridge says. “With every type of project, we have the ability to present information on labor cost and price.”
When any order is created, the BuildCentrix platform compiles, holds, and relates that information, making it available for every aspect of a job and making it accessible and easy to retrieve and interpret. This eliminates the need to chase down data from various places and softwares.
“This feature has always been a part of the BuildCentrix platform,” Beveridge says. “It is a real differentiator in the market because other systems only connect to the model, whereas ours interfaces with accounting systems and connects each element of a project.”
